Images of Fiadanana from October 2007

The village of Fiadanana has changed tremendously since 2005. Based on the training from a medical doctor specialized in infections transmitted by insects, many of the villagers have finished their houses with white adobe. Adobe finish closes the cracks that host insects and bugs and metal sheets nailed on the corner of the houses keep the rats out.

The seven communal water faucets all over the village (click here for photos) provide clean and save drinking water to all. This water can also be used to make the adobe paste or water small vegetable plots next to the village.

The first image is from October 2005 (more 2005 Photos):
